Hello friends of innovation!


At the end of the year, it is custom to look back. Highlights, insights, lists, everything goes. We at TIS gathered five groundbreaking developments that happened in 2018 and most likely will have a lasting effect in the years to come. Enjoy watching and enjoy the festive season! 


Editing babies

Probably the most shocking news involving new technology came from China this year. Scientist He Jiankui announced that he altered the DNA of two human embryos. Lulu and Nana are now alive and appear to be healthy babies.

Smarter and smarter

Where He Jiankui was working on human beings, Deepmind continued to improve their artificial intelligence technology in 2018. They used the findings of the Go-competition and created a new version of the software that does not require any human examples to learn how to play a complex game. Just the basic rules are needed, the system will train itself afterwards.

Theme | SPACE

Hello sun

From the bits and bytes to the real world. Or actually, beyond our world. Space has been a very fruitful area for the development of new technology in the past. 2018 marked a new era in space exploration. For the first time ever, a probe came as close as 24 million kilometres to the sun and stayed intact.

Sun in a bottle

Knowing more about the sun can be important, using the sun for power is one of the things humankind is relying on for the next decades. Whilst solar panels are becoming more and more abundant, the quest for energy storage seems to be at the beginning. At the Chalmers University of Technology, scientists have found a way to store solar energy "in a bottle" for over 18 months and release it with an ever-increasing efficiency.

Water in a box

One other use for solar could be the production of clean water.  Researchers from Berkeley University use a metal-organic framework, or MOF, in combination with the power of the sun to harvest clean water from the air in a process that promises much better future efficiency.
